18:14 Kevin Spacey had to record the scene where Prot eats a whole banana (skin and all) 27 times.
Prot's signature sunglasses are actually a favorite pair owned and worn by U2's frontman, Bono. Kevin Spacey asked to borrow them for the film, which Bono agreed to under the condition that they were well cared for and were returned immediately upon completion of the film.
The original plan was that Will Smith was to play Prot and Kevin Spacey Dr. Mark Powell. When Smith pulled out of the role, Spacey decided to play Prot.

During an episode of Kevin Pollak's Chat Show (2009), Bill Hader revealed that he had worked on K-PAX (2001) as a production assistant for one day, but was fired after accidentally letting two costumed actors from Planet of the Apes (2001) wander through a shot during filming.
Kevin Spacey did actually eat a banana with its peels.
Prot's name in the book is said to rhyme with "goat." Obviously, it is short for "protagonist."
